Obama Administration Giving Corrupt Unions a Free Pass

Corruption and Reform in the Teamsters Union (Working Class in American History)
The last Office of Labor Management report on union corruption dates back to the Bush administration. A report was supposed to be released in January 2010, but Team Obama has failed to do so.
(Daily Caller)- The Office of Labor Management Statistics (OLMS) was supposed to release an annual report tracking labor unions and evidence of corruption in union leadership in January 2010 but still hasn’t released the document.

OLMS, which falls under the Department of Labor, has released no such tracking report since George W. Bush’s administration, something that has the conservative nonprofit organization Americans for Limited Government (ALG) up in arms. ALG filed a Freedom of Information Act request for the 2009 report, and OLMS denied the group’s request by saying it needed more time to complete the report. Originally, however, those reports were publicly available on the OLMS website.
